We fund agencies and their homeless-serving programs to maximize benefits to people experiencing homelessness.
We award funds based on the quality of proposals received from different agencies and their contribution to Calgary’s Homeless-Serving System of Care. We also conduct our own research and evaluation, seeking opportunities to fund new projects.
We fund programs and projects through public, competitive, and accountable procurement methods such as a Request for Proposals (RFP), grant requests and other public calls for application processes.
